Motivation

Motivation

  • P-P collisions are a baseline to compare heavy-ion results to

  • Study pQCD (PYTHIA) mini-Jet production in a “clean” environment

  • Study systematic behavior of <pt> vs event multiplicity for strange particles

Mark Heinz


Results data sample

Results – Data Sample

Mark Heinz


Omega and anti omega

Omega and Anti-Omega

  • Not enough statistics for pt-spectra

  • Anti-particle/particle Ratio is 0.9+-0.1

Mark Heinz


Pt vs particle mass

<pt> vs particle mass

  • Measured particles over large mass range

  • Mass dependence, but not from flow

  • Nice agreement with phenomenological curve established by ISR (25GeV)

  • Strange baryons and resonances are above the curve

Mark Heinz


Multiplicity dependence of pt

Multiplicity dependence of <pt>

  • How to define Multiplicity ?

  • Definition of Ncharge is experiment dependant (pseudo-rapidity acceptance coverage)

Mark Heinz


Mini jet theory hijing wang gyulassy

Mini-Jet Theory/HIJING (Wang&Gyulassy)

Ncharge distribution for 200 GeV (UA5)

  • Mini-jet X-section becomes significant at √200 GeV

  • Geometrical scaling breaks (ratio of σinel / σelastic non-constant)

  • Inelastic X-section:

    • σinel = ΣσnJet

NJet=1

Contribution of Mini-jets is considerable at n>30.

NJet=2

Pt vs multiplicity star

Composite fit

Powerlaw fit

Mt-exponential fit

  • Measurement is dependant on the parameterization used (fit function to spectra)

  • Increase in <pt> for Lambda (35%) is stronger than for K0s (20%)

Mini jets in pythia

Parton <pt> vs Multiplicity

Pt correlation Parton/Final

Mini-Jets in PYTHIA

  • String fragmentation (Lund Model)

  • Pythia-Settings (6.2/MSEL1)

  • Correlations between pt of hard parton process and event multiplicity

  • Correlation between pt of parton process and final state pt

Mark Heinz


Pythia pt spectra

Spectra at mid rapidity

PYTHIA and data disagree in:

Shape of pt-spectra & <pt>

Pythia pt vs multiplicity

PYTHIA: <pt> vs multiplicity

K0short

Lambda

  • Systematic & statistical errors shown

  • PYTHIA underpredicts the magnitude and correlation strength between <pt> and multiplicity for measured strange particles

Recently CDF (Fermilab) has also shown the discrepancy between PYTHIA

And data for <pt>h+- vs Nch (PRD 65,2002)

Mark Heinz


Summary

Summary

  • Highest statistics measurement in p+p (200GeV) of neutral strange and multi-strange particles

  • Yield and <pt> are consistent with previous measurements from UAx/Fermilab experiments

  • PYTHIA fails to describe the shape of the spectra and the multiplicity dependence of <pt>

    Future Work

  • More work to be done to get <pt> of Xi and Φ as function of multiplicity

  • Long Paper is in the works for publication this fall
